Jobs Fair


Kerry Jobs Fair 2022

Employers and jobseekers will get a unique opportunity to meet face to face to see if they can make a suitable match at a Kerry Jobs Fair 2022 which will take place on Monday 25th April at the Rose Hotel from 10am-3.30pm. The event will showcase jobs from many of the county’s leading companies.

The event is being run by NEWKD’s Moving On and SICAP programmes in association with Kerry Chambers.  This is a free event which is open to the public on a drop in basis with 100’s of job opportunities across a wide range of sectors in Kerry.  Employers are recruiting in many different sectors with a great variety of positions.  Alongside the employers will be a Careers Clinic offering job seeking supports like CVs and cover letters as well as information on upskilling and qualifications.

According to Lisa O’Flaherty co-ordinator of Moving On who organised the event “the response from employers has been fantastic.  Over 30 employers will be present on the day who are actively looking to employ staff.  This is a great opportunity for people looking for work in Kerry.  There are a large number of current vacancies across a range of sectors including office administration, IT, accounts, finance, hospitality, manufacturing, food production, retail and more.  People will have the chance to talk to employers directly about full time, part time, seasonal and remote job vacancies.”

Robert Carey, the manager of the NEWKD SICAP programme says “it will be great to have so many employers under the one roof.  This jobs fair will give people a chance to connect face to face with employers.  That gives them a better chance of finding something to suit their skills.”

As well as being open to the public Robert explains that “Ukrainian refugees will be supported to attend the jobs fair by being targeted with information before the event and we will provide  translation services on the day.  NEWKD is part of the Kerry Community Response Forum facilitated by Kerry County Council that is supporting Ukrainian Refugees in Kerry and employment is a key part of this as they are anxious to work.  Colette O’Connor from Kerry Chambers affirms the importance of this. “Over the last few weeks we have been inundated with businesses trying to help those fleeing from Ukraine.  We feel this is a very timely opportunity to meet people in person and explore employment opportunities.”

Lisa encourages “everyone looking for work to come along on the day.  At Moving On we have supported hundreds of women to return to work over the years.  We know it can be intimidating to take the first step so there will be people available to welcome you on the day.  Don’t miss this great opportunity to explore your future career prospects.”

NEWKD’s ESF Moving On employment project and SICAP social inclusion programme came together to fund this this event and wish all the employers and job seekers best wishes for the day.
